This is kind of hard to describe - when the camera app is in video mode, the camera image appears more "zoomed in" than it is when the camera app is in photo mode. Here is an image to show you what I mean: http://i.imgur.com/JUosA.jpg


The image is of the phone held in the exact same place, just in photo and video mode. Notice how in video mode the image appears more zoomed in. Why is this? Even after double-tapping the video viewfinder to zoom out, it's still zoomed in compared to when in photo mode. Maybe this is for image stabilization?


Here is another example, with the video viewfinder overlayed on the photo viewfinder to show the obvious zooming: http://i.imgur.com/BSguL.jpg
